A New Edge to New Zealand – Science Express

Where does New Zealand’s official boundary end?


Two years ago New Zealand took the results of a 10-year research study to the United Nations Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf, in a bid to determine our extended continental shelf (ECS). Gerard van Bohemen and Dr Bryan Davy discuss the study.

Recorded in October 2008 as part of Te Papa’s Science Express programme.
